the president of the united states, bram -- barack obama. >> thanks for everybody out there who cares deeply about this issue. monica's story is important because for all the day-to-day fights here in washington around the affordable care act, it's stories like hers why we took on this fight in the first place. r too long, working families were more vulnerable to the angst yites of today's economy than a broken health care system. we took up the fight because we believe that in america, nobody should have to worry about going broke just because somebody in their family or they got sick. we believe that nobody should have to choose between putting food on their kid's table or taking them to see a doctor. we believe we are a better country than a country where we allow every day 14,000 americans to lose their health care coverage or where tens of thousands of americans die because they didn't have health -- out of re oup pocket costs drove people into poverty. we thought we were better than that and that's why we took this on.
